Wow...I imagine some days are like that at work. Although, this one has to be right up there in the top 3 least likely stories to be overheard at a cop bar...Hey, Mikey! Remember that time you hooked up the former Romanian princess for cockfighting?
60 year-old Irina Walker and her husband, 67 year-old John, were among 18 indicted by a federal grand jury for their roles in a cockfighting ring running in eastern Oregon. I know, I hear ya. What the hell? Aren't people their age supposed to be doing cute shit together, like sitting in separate bathtubs watching the fucking sunset or some kind of shit?
The rub is that Irina Walker, as fate would have it, is actually 55th in line to the British throne. This is by virtue of her being the third daughter of Michael, last king of Romania and a distant descendant of Queen Victoria. I'll bet whoever it was that thought up King Ralph sure as hell didn't have any sidestories involving cockfighting. Not even with Mark Wahlberg wearing a prosthetic.
I will bet you, however, that #56-100 are checking around to see if they moved up the list...
The Walkers were in Multnomah County jail as of Friday, charged with operating an illegal gambling business and unlawful animal fighting charges, and face the forfeiture of the properties used in the gambling venture.
